Lunch at Gauthier

I met up with my friend Rob on Friday and we had lunch at Gauthier in Soho.  This is quite an old building and it was like going into someones house instead of a restaurant.   The staff were very attentive and the food was wonderful.  

I had for starter a soft poached hens egg with sautéed cos lettuce, red pepper marmalade with crispy bird skin.    My main course was buttermilk poached organic salmon, sprouting broccoli, pomme cocottes with yuzu and fish jus.   My dessert was a gorgeous Golden Louis XV - dark chocolate praline.   We, of course, started with a glass of champagne and wine to match the meal.   Finally we had coffee and some lovely petit fours.    It was wonderful meal. 

Sorry no photos of this wonderful food!
